Volume 29: Closing Carbon Cycles – A Transformation Process Involving Technology, Economy, and Society: Part IV

Economic and environmental impacts of installation of fast charging on existing buildings for V2B uses Jae Heo, Soowon Chang



As a growing need for reducing carbon emissions, the renewable energy-based electric vehicle (EV) system has been studied. Extensive research has investigated the optimal sites for EV charging stations (EVCS) powered by photovoltaic (PV) plants. However, feasible ranges of applying EVCS powered by PV can be varied by different land use. This paper presents the effective approaches for siting and sizing EV charging stations using the geo-spatial clustering method on Geographic Information System (GIS). This study explores the optimization of site selection for charging stations depending on parcel maps and conducts an economy and environment analysis through the evaluation of potential electricity which can be generated in the study area.
